Meep meeeeeep – happy hump day! So remember how I promised to do two playlists in August because the monthly playlist got skipped in July?
Yeah, that didn’t happen.
Just like my TurboFire workouts this week didn’t happen. Still struggling with the decision of sleep versus exercise… is there a correct solution in that debate?
Free time in my life right now… does not exist. Work and travel own my soul. And I’m still working on dealing with it. Sheesh… I probably shouldn’t write posts when I’m this bummed about my lack of progress on personal goals, but I still wanted to share some good music with y’all to make up for the past couple months. (YEAH I threw a y’all in there – I’m in Memphis!)
SO.. here is a list of some of my favorite spots for new music. Take a peek and recommend some new favorites for me since I’ve had no time to browse lately
This is my favorite part of lululemon’s site actually. They update frequently with new playlists, inspiring goal-setting ideas and . Try searching for “music” “playlist” or “running music” for some great lists.
Uhhh if you haven’t figured it out yet, Gina aka the Fitnessista is pretty much my idol. I want to be her when I grow up She sprinkles lots of her posts with “something to listen”, and some of my favorite playlists of hers are here and here. *Bonus* – the playlists often come with built-in workouts. Are you starting to understand my obsession with her blog?!
I actually subscribe to the weekly email from this website, which provides club/dance music, top 40 hits and college radio-type music with beats-per-minute listed for your playlist making pleasure. Not everything is up my alley, but I usually get quite a few of my workout jams from here.
My other music secrets? I write down snippets of lyrics from songs I hear in restaurants, movies, hotel lobbies, the radio.. anywhere! in a memo on my phone, then Google the lyrics and download the songs later I often Google soundtracks to movies, too (recently Googled: the Morning Glory soundtrack) – then pick through them on iTunes or via YouTube and pick out my faves. What are your favorite sources for new workout music?
Just an update on the week, too, so you all don’t think I’m about to jump out of my hotel window – I’ve had a great time with my coworkers outside of work this week. Last night I had one of the best shrimp nicoise salads I’ve ever had at dinner, and we spent tonight enjoying the sights and smells of Beale Street. There just isn’t enough time in the day for everything I want to do lately… (and tomorrow is a 15 hour day of work-and-travel. Yikes.) At least I have a *four day weekend* to look forward to after tomorrow. WHOOOOO!!!
How do you deal when there just isn’t enough time in the day?!
